Long Term Evolution Downlink Physical Layer Simulation in Matlab and Simulink

Karthik Ravindhra, Siva Subramanian Manohar, and Uma Sankar Govindaswamy

Abstract—Long-term evolution (LTE) represents an emerging and promising technology for providing broadband ubiquitous Internet access. For this reason, several research groups are trying to optimize its performance. In this paper, we introduce a Matlab and Simulink-based LTE downlink physical-layer simulator according to 3GPP specifications and related proposals. The simulation is carried out for the single downlink, from one E-UTRAN (eNodeB) to one User Equipment (UE). Brief introduction of every part is given along with physical concepts and analysis for bit error rate and throughput are studied for different system settings.

Index Terms—LTE, 3GPP, MIMO, OFDM
